    Welcome to the forums!

    First I'd check my devices to make sure they are working ok.

    Click start>control panel>hardware & sound>device manager

    See if any of your installed devices have a yellow alert tag. If they do, that would be the device causing the trouble. Driver software for an affected device my need to be reinstalled or updated.

    You could also try a system restore to a point before this error happened. Then check your device manager again. If the affected device is no longer flagged, then you should be ok.

    Let us know if this worked for you.

    Try Event Viewer for any possible hardware errors that may be the root
    cause.
